Hello everyone!

I just wanted to give you the heads up that I have promoted Lambert with some moderating powers. Since he's in the UK, he often catches those early morning spam posts before I am awake, so he'll be helping me watch out for that.

Luckily, with the admin-approved registration, that has been much less of an issue, but every once in a while someone manages to fool me into thinking they're a real person. (So far the rate is probably under .1%, which should give you an idea of just how many registration attempts I see per day.)

If you need and help and Lambert happens to be on, feel free to poke him. He can also do some basic thread management if you need something moved or split.

And by the way, if you happen to be a real fan of one of our games with an email address or ISP in Russia or the Ukraine, I'm very sorry that your registration attempt has been ignored. Try to message me through one of our other social media accounts and I'll take care of it. :)

-Eric

As I read the title, I suspected as much :D I approve of this! ;)

Congratulations (or my sympathies?) to you, Lambert.

Also, I am in the middle of a massive purge of suspicious accounts left over from before the registration restrictions. All of the accounts I'm looking at have 0 posts AND a bunch of red flags in their account information, so if you've a) posted at least once or b) made an account that looks like a real person, you're probably okay.

First of all thank you to Eric for showing this trust in my ability to resist the ultimate power of the moderator and to only use my powers for good.

Secondly thank you for the kind words from my fellow forum members. I reckon all that needs moderating is to from time to time delete the occasional spam post before Eric has a chance to check on the forum.

So still report any suspicious posts as you have been doing and hopefully me helping out just reduces the time spam is visible for.

Go with the twelve.
